Behind the Japanese maple is a dirt path that leads to the Chester Valley Trail.  Please note that this is not a developed trail.  There are rocks and stumps on the trail, so proceed with caution.

How to get back to Daylesford Lake from the Chester Valley Trail

The access path is west of the Swedesford Road overpass and east of a bench (i.e. it is between the overpass and the bench).  Swedesford Road is marked with a sign.  If you are coming from the King of Prussia direction, once you pass Swedesford Rd, look for the trail which is on the left side and before the bench.  If you are coming from the Malvern direction and get to the Swedesford Road intersection, turn around and look for the trail on the left side.
